Officials Miss Two Brutal Cheap Shots on Patrick Mahomes (Video)

Chiefs vs. playoff officials. The AFC Divisional Bills missed a Buffalo defender who knelt Patrick Mahomes in a late veil.

The hotly contested playoff battle between Chief and Bill not always completely friendly.

Patrick Mahomes shared his hits. Not all of them are legal.

Unfortunately for Kansas City, the referees didn’t seem to notice.

Officials missed a brutal cheap shot on Patrick Mahomes

The Buffalo defenders hit Mahomes late and high on a couple of occasions, including this clear cheap shot on the sidelines very well after Mahomes was sacked.

One could argue the exposure was random, but it was also with Mahomes behind his back and beyond his limits.

Later in the game, the Bills reappear to search for the head of Mahomes.

Neither of those hits were flagged as illegal.

Since the NFL has gone to such lengths to protect quarterbacks, especially star defenders, it’s surprising that they seem content to let those types of plays perpetuate.

The first obvious concern was about Mahomes’ well-being. Head of Safety Tyrann Mathieu was removed from the game because of the concussion. The last thing anyone wants to see is if Mahomes suffers the same fate.

It’s also an inch game with two Super Bowl contenders going head-to-head. Every yard matters, and refs that don’t flag such hits will spare Buffalo some serious yardstick penalties. Officials Miss Two Brutal Cheap Shots on Patrick Mahomes (Video)
